Collectors Role

A collector is a business registered with UOMA NL to pick up the products governed by the Regulation from large generators or collection facilities and deliver them to registered UOMA NL processors.

At the heart of UOMA NL’s program we find incentives (Return Incentives or RIs) to collectors, according to the different zones in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The financing of these subsidies comes from the (Environmental Handling Charges) EHCs paid by members on their sales occurred in Newfoundland and Labrador of the products covered by the Regulation.

Does your organization generate a large amount of recyclable material? A registered collector will take care of the collection directly at your door.

Register as a collector

What documentation do I need in order to register as a UOMA NL collector?

It is important to read through the collectors and processors manual to fully understand the program.

To register as a UOMA NL collector, you must send the following items to UOMA NL:

a) the collector registration form and all the documents outlined therein
b) the collectors agreement, signed, dated and initialized on every page
c) a check for $ 200 plus all applicable taxes

UOMA NL will examine the information received and will schedule an appointment with the registrant. Following the meeting, if all is in order, the registrant will be presented with a registration certificate along with a copy of their collectors agreement signed by UOMA NL. All collectors registered with UOMA NL appear on the website with the products that they collect and their zones of activity.

IT IS IMPERATIVE that you read the supplemental information sent to all collectors in compliance with the collectors agreement. You will find this information in the Communiqués section of this website under “Collectors”.

What documentation do I need to complete in order to register with UOMA NL as an internal collector-processor?

In the case of a registration for an internal collector-processor, UOMA NL requires all of the documents required for a collector registration AND all of the documents required for a processor registration.

UOMA NL will examine the documents and if all is in order, UOMA NL will forward the registration certificate to the registrant along with a copy of the agreements (collectors and processors) signed by UOMA NL.

Internal collector-processors do not appear on UOMA NL’s website.

Annual renewal

Which documents are you required to complete to renew your registration as a UOMA NL collector?

In order to renew your registration as a UOMA NL collector, you must:

  • Complete the Collector registration renewal form, to which must be attached PDF copies of your permits/certificates issued by the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment (or any other local government authority that applies) and a proof of civil insurance for the current year for each of your installations;
  • Send UOMA NL a cheque for $200 plus applicable taxes.

If everything is compliant, the applicant will receive their registration certificate via email. The latter will be valid for a year, from January 1st to December 31st.
